Golden Japanese curry udon with chicken by kurumicooks tasty easy healthy Japanese Asian and Fusion cooking and food for your kitchen

What do you eat with your curry? Rice? Naan bread? Well, here is a very popular Japanese

dish that pairs Japanese curry with udon noodles. I have no idea who had the inspiration to combine two elements which, let's face it, don't leap off the page as being ideal partners. My guess is that somebody, sometime, had some leftover curry sauce and some udon and thought, well this will do. That someone put the two elements together, the food alchemy got going and the rest, as they say, is history. Curry udon was one of my favourite childhood meals. When my mother used to make it with, you guessed it, leftover curry sauce. She'd dilute it a little to make it a better partner to the noodles. I think this dish migrated from the home to the restaurant as you can find it in most Japanese noodle shops these days. I make my curry udon in this recipe using chicken but you don't need to use chicken (or any meat for that matter, if you prefer). You can find my youtube tutorial by clicking Curry Udon or simply scroll down to the bottom of the page. The written recipe for my Curry Udon is just below.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX
